Triple Crown at Stanford for San Diego Premier
In another outstanding performance, San Diego Premier Field Hockey Club won three of its four pools at the 2013 Stanford 7v7 Tournament, April 13-14 in Palo Alto.
Playing in only their second tournament, the SDP teams went undefeated at the Under 16 level, sweeping to eight wins against zero defeats on a warm Sunday afternoon at Stanford. Even more impressive was their play the previous day at the Under 19 level, as the SDP freshmen and sophomores chalked up six wins, one tie and only one defeat against the older girls.
Coached by Torrey Pines High School head coach Katy Moyneur and former U.S. National Team player Kristi Gannon Fisher, the teams at Stanford comprised players from Serra, Torrey Pines, Scripps Ranch, Fallbrook, La Costa Canyon, Westview, Rancho Bernardo, Valhalla and San Dieguito high schools, and Carmel Valley Middle School.
The “triple crown” at Stanford follows an impressive debut performance at the Cal 6v6 in March during which San Diego Premier took first overall in the middle division and second overall in the elite division in the club’s first-ever tournament.
SD Premier Takes 1st and 2nd at Cal 6 v 6
Playing in its first-ever competitive event, San Diego Premier field hockey club took a first place and a second place in the Under 16 division of the Cal 6v6 Tournament in Northern California.
Premier took three teams to the tourney and all did remarkably well, compiling a record of 14 wins and only one loss in pool play – and that lone defeat was one Premier team getting beat by another.
A total of 24 teams from more than a dozen clubs took part in the tournament, hosted by UC Berkeley’s nationally ranked collegiate field hockey team. But SD Premier was the only club that had two teams advance to the championship round.
SDP Yellow won the U16 middle championship in a shootout over Moorpark Coyotes after the championship game ended in a tie. SDP Blue finished second at the U16 elite level in another shootout (that went six rounds) after their title game against Hollywood AC finished in a 3-3 draw.
